Suzuki has launched a new variant for their popular Access 125 scooter. The Access 125 now gets an alloy wheel + drum brake variant with Combi Brake System (CBS) and the brand claims that this has been done since there is a lot of demand for scooters with alloy wheels. The Suzuki Access 125 is one of India’s top selling 125cc scooters.
The new variant runs with the same engine, completely unchanged. The Suzuki Access 125 has a 124cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled petrol motor producing 8.7 PS of power @ 7000 RPM and 10.2 Nm of torque @ 5000 RPM matched to a CVT automatic gearbox. The scooter comes with a M-Squish combustion chamber for better performance and efficiency.
The 2019 Suzuki Access 125 alloy wheel with drum brake variant is available in blue, black, grey and white paint options. The Access 125 Special Edition (SE) variant will also get this non-disc brake variant available in red, black, silver and white paint schemes. The Suzuki Access 125 alloy wheel + drum brake variant costs INR 59,891 ex-showroom while the similar Special Edition asks for INR 61,590 ex-showroom.
With Combi Brake System (CBS), by simply applying the rear brake lever on the left, the system applies equal brake forces to the front and rear wheels. This allows for a safer stopping distance and prevents any possible skidding of the wheels. For safety, apart from CBS, the Suzuki Access 125 also gets a safety shutter and central locking
In terms of features, the Suzuki Access 125 comes with electric start, large floor board, chrome accents, digital speedo console, oil change indicator, trim meter and telescopic front fork.
The Suzuki Access 125 rivals the likes of TVS Jupiter, Honda Activa 125, Honda Grazia, Piaggio Vespa 125 and the likes. The Access 125 has been in the market for quite some time now, and has even received a mild refresh. We expect Suzuki to showcase a new scooter for the Indian market at the 2020 Auto Expo, which will come with more features and also a BSVI engine.
